Bioenergy research centre turns to lab and data management solution
The Joint BioEnergy Institute, a US Department of Energy research centre in California, is deploying a lab and integrated data management solution for multiple sciences. JBEI is a scientific partnership that is led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and includes the Sandia National Laboratories, the University of California campuses of Berkeley and Davis, the Carnegie Institution for Science and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. JBEI's primary scientific mission is to advance the development of the next generation of biofuels – liquid fuels derived from the solar energy stored in plant biomass.
'The solution [from GenoLogics] has the capabilities we require to integrate data from different sciences and technologies, while tracking samples across multiple experiments and projects all in a single lab and data management system,' said Dr Paul Adams, JBEI's vice president of technology. 'The GenoLogics system will also allow us to easily generate reports showing data from multiple sciences and automate our data pipelining for integrated analysis.'
Since GenoLogics lab and data management solutions are built for the unique needs of research organisations, they are already designed to provide an integrated view of data from the type of sciences and technologies the JBEI employs. Pre-configured integrations across many instruments, combined with the GenoLogics reporting engine, means the solution will also improve the data quality and integrated analysis that is needed to advance the JBEI research.
